Bose, Sir Jagadis Chandra - Plants and perceptions - memory



Type of Spiritual Experience


Dr Bose produced convincing evidence that a plant perceives and that it perceives its environment through sensory stimuli and may also experience some emotional response to the stimuli.  But is there a ‘perception log’ or memory?

If the theory that the perception log is used for monitoring creation is true, then there has to be a perception log for everything created.  Did Dr Bose find any evidence for a perception log?

The answer appears to be yes. 

There is one small phrase in this revelation that could easily get lost if you did not stop and take not – even in inorganic matter.  Which brings us on to the next set of observations for inorganic matter.


A description of the experience

Sir Jagadis Chandra Bose – His Life and Speeches

A question long perplexing physiologists and psychologists alike is that concerned with the great mystery that underlies memory.  But now through certain experiments I have carried out, it is possible to trace 'memory impressions' backwards even in inorganic matter, such latent impressions being capable of subsequent revival. 

Again the tone of our sensation is determined by the intensity of nervous excitation that reaches the central perceiving organ.  It would theoretically be possible to change the tone or quality  of our sensation, if means could be discovered by which the nervous impulse would become modified during transit.  Investigation on nervous impulse in plants has led to a discovery of a controlling method, which was found equally effective in regard to the nervous impulse in animal.
